This fiftieth anniversary edition of Lindbergh's classic on the lives of modern women is sure to earn a permanent spot on audiophiles' bookshelves. It opens with a tribute by the author's daughter, Reeve Lindbergh, and is followed by Anne Lindbergh's reflections 20 years after the original publication. The main work, beautifully read by the late Claudette Colbert, compares women's lives and relationships to seashells. New love, as an example, is like a double sunrise shell--both lovely and fragile. Colbert's richly distinct and refined voice matches well the lyrical musings that urge listeners to make self-examination and self-development a priority. Today's world may seem light years beyond the 1950s, yet Lindbergh's work, perfect for the audio format, remains a timely treasure. J.J.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
